Rio Olympics: Leaving Them All Behind

Usain Bolt left know doubt that he is the world's fastest and longest reigning sprinter.  Bolt went out in search of his third double Gold Medal in the Athletics sprinting events.  He had already won a third consecutive Gold Medal in the Men's 100 Meter Dash, so it should come as no surprise that he was able to do the same in the 200 Meter race.  However no one expected him to leave such a gap that no one else is even in the frame.  Bolt's only disappointment is that he didn't break his own World Record.  Gee, gosh, my heart bleeds for him...  I thought that he was mugging for the photographers as he crossed the line, but no, he was checking the clock beside the track.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
